Why keep testing after the vaccine rollout?

The rollout of COVID-19 vaccines is a welcome and hopeful new chapter in the fight against the global pandemic. But it’s important to remember that testing will continue to be vital in preventing the spread of the coronavirus, even as vaccines have become widely available.

  • Fully vaccinated people could contract COVID-19 with or without symptoms.
  • Vaccinated individuals who have been potentially exposed to COVID-19 should get tested, even if they show no symptoms.
  • Like the flu, new variants of the coronavirus will continue to form over time. Available vaccines may not fully protect against these new variants.

Helping to reduce COVID-19 transmission

  • Clinician-informed protocols and guidance for symptom checking and temperature screening.
  • Integrated reporting and analytics that enable tracking and alerts of positive results.
  • Additional health and safety solutions, including symptom monitoring and contact tracing.

Important information

COVID‑19 testing does not eliminate the risk of transmission of SARSCoV-2 or Coronavirus Disease 2019. Further, available testing procedures may produce false negative or false positive results due to a variety of factors. The COVID‑19 pandemic has created an unprecedented and still-evolving legal landscape for clients. You may need to consider various federal, state, and local laws, regulations, or other mandates when developing your return to worksite, campus or event plans. Competent legal counsel should be consulted. This is not intended to be a complete description of the terms and conditions of the Return Ready program. Services described would be provided by CVS Pharmacy, Inc. or a subsidiary, including but not limited to MinuteClinic, LLC and its subsidiaries and managed entities. In addition, access to additional health and safety solutions such as contact tracing and symptom checker may be through third parties. Not all services available in all locations.
